The Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda promoted the nation's citizenship program at the 8th Henley and Partners Global Residence and Citizenship Conference in Singapore, telling delegates that Antigua and Barbuda is open for business.
The conference was attended by international investors, politicians, business executives, and academics.
